The patented Rheo Drum Tipper is designed to help operators safely transfer materials out of drums while providing access to the drum’s contents. The Variable Height Drum Tipper takes the benefits of the standard Drum Tipper to a new level; a dual-stage design allows drums to be lifted and tipped at much higher heights than is possible with a standard Drum Tipper. Also, the variable height technology allows operators to serve a variety of discharge heights with a single machine; including applications with adjustable-height ergonomic features, such as enclosures. Safety, containment, and productivity are all addressed with this simple to use machine.
Safety: The Rheo Drum Tipper addresses the ergonomic risk factors of manually dumping drums. The Tipper can position drums directly above the receiving vessel or container to reduce operator lifting.
Containment: By using the Rheo Drum Tipper to control the drum movement and position of the drum, the drum’s liner can be used to improve containment as the product is emptied from the drum. When used in conjunction with an Rheo Ventilation Sleeve, the drum liner can be held below the slots of the Ventilation Sleeve to achieve containment levels of less than 10 µg/m3.
Productivity: The Rheo Drum Tipper’s simple over-center tipping motion both raises and tips a drum with a single actuator which enables the consistent positioning of multiple drums. The Drum Tipper is designed for easy, open transfer of powders. The Drum Tipper’s tilt angle can be adjusted to achieve optimal product flow to greatly improve operator efficiency. The discharge height can be easily adjusted using the vertical lift actuator to ensure the product is always discharged at the optimum level.
